Politicians Lies cost Jobs, Homes and now Lives at Grenfell Tower

At every election the spin and lies are pitched out as 'the truth'. ALL Political parties lie about their agendas in their manifestoes. Lies that can cost everyone of us dearly yet we accept it because 'all politicians lie'.

 How many times have we been promised one thing and been delivered something completely different. 'No rise in Income tax!' Then up it goes.  No rise in VAT!' and there's another 2/3/4/5 % added within months. 'No tuition fees!' and then £9,000 a year. That sounds like a lot of nothing to me. 'We will cut the cost of child care!' Then it increases. 'We will abolish this law or that law' then add to it so it is worse. 'We are the party of the people, pensioners, the disabled!' then they bring in laws to make life worse for all of these people. So many promises, so many lies. Why do we have to accept this situation?

If you or I were to lie like this in our workplace we would be dismissed. If I were to lie about problems with my house when I sold it I would be sued.  If I lied about my qualifications for a job I would be sacked. So why should Politicians get away with it? How can political parties promise one thing and then do the opposite? How can they lie to the whole country to get elected into the most powerful jobs and positions of TRUST and then spend five years doing whatever they like, give themselves above inflation rises while giving those most worthy of it less than half that? Then say sorry in the weeks before an Election, and again lie about the reasons why they were forced to break their original promises but then do it all over again?

If it is made a CRIMINAL OFFENCE, and yes, possibly jail time, then these unscrupulous people would not only have to think twice about their promises/lies, it would force them to be more honest with their all round dealings with us the voters. It would also stop Political Parties making outrageous promises they know full well they can not deliver just to make life difficult for other parties. 

PROSECUTE THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE LIES AREN'T SMALL WHITE LIES THAT MEAN NOTHING BUT ARE LIES THAT CAN KILL WHOLE COMMUNITIES. PLEASE SIGN AND LET'S GET A MILLION PEOPLE BEHIND THIS AND NEVER ALLOW IT AGAIN.
